Master Drummer David Jones presents a solo concert experience.
Using his extensive drum kit, percussion and electronic wavedrum and effects, David promises a mesmerising and animated journey through rhythms inspired by his everyday life.
Drumscapes is a celebration of music David hears in the environment – in the hum of machines that define his city life, and in the clink of a teaspoon stirring his morning coffee.
From the sounds of a fluttering butterfly to a roaring locomotive, David’s landscape of rhythms and effects will have you entranced one minute, body-drumming the next.
